The AlpineStars AirFlo is an okay set of mesh gear, but it's got a couple flaws that buyers should be aware of. The knee armor isn't real armor, it's just thin soft foam. The same goes for the back protector (but every jacket manufacturer does this, so I can't ding it too many points here). There's no zipper to zip the jacket to the pants. The jacket sleeves are wide, to accommodate smaller gloves that would go inside the sleeves, but it can be hard to fit them inside larger gauntlets that go over the sleeves. However, the thing vents air incredibly well and still looks like it'll provide some abrasion resistance. Just budget for some knee protectors and a zipper, basically.
